International Cricket Legend and UNICEF Regional Goodwill Ambassador Sachin Tendulkar arrived in Sri Lanka as part of UNICEF’s Hygiene and Sanitation programme for Children in Sri Lanka.

During his short stay in the country, News 1st caught with Little Master for an exclusive insight into this cricketing legend’s work towards child sanitation and hygiene.

Expressing his views to us on his new role, he said that as a UNICEF ambassador, he believes in something that he would like to reiterate on what his parents told him.

Tendulkar said:

It is a ‘big match’ against all the diarrhoeal diseases, and if we all get together and participate in this match and defeat all these diseases, it would be our greatest victory. It is disheartening to know that 1600 die of diarrhoeal diseases.

Speaking about his cricketing career, he noted that it has been a journey that he thoroughly enjoyed  and  that he knew that he will play “a good standard of cricket.”

Tendulkar, speaking further, noted that his dream started when India won the World Cup in 1983. And from there onwards he started chasing his dream adding that he wanted to hold a trophy as well.
